is guilty of violating them. i assume most of you know this but i want to be clear. the law is extremely protective of the free-speech rights of college students. extremely protective. obviously of free speech, period but on the campuses in particular the case is coming out of the 1970's. the supreme court was very clear that the universities cannot restrict even highly offensive speech on campus. this is very clearly established there's been over a dozen legal opinions and challenges to the campus speech codes over the past several decades and every one of them has been successful 65% of campuses the three injured 92 campuses that we surveyed in the most recent study maintained speech codes that are either unconstitutional and public colleges or private colleges violate that initial promise of freedom of speech. we've been able to a speech code of the month since 2005 on. we've done it every single months and we are in no danger of running out of the codes and that is outrageous given that the public colleges these are all unconstitutional not even a close call but i will give you an ex

of that debate i respectfully suggest are thousands of pages of laws and regulations that are unlikely to forestall another financial crisis in the future. indeed, government rescues of large insolvent firms coupled with substantial compensation that c e os and senior managers of failed firms manage to keep for themselves means that once the economy returns to a semblance of health incentives to take non economic risks may be even greater than before. opening constructive dialogue in these issues will not be easy given the current atmosphere in washington but would seem well worth the effort. thank you. >> thanks, tom. alex, would you like to operate few comments? >> thanks very much for giving me the opportunity to comment on tom's very interesting and very useful book. i said that having been a practicing banking executive. overbearing ceo? i was a ceo for 14 years and i wonder if i was overbearing, surely not. tom, in his book, sites frank night's risk and uncertainty and profits, deservedly famous work from 1921 and i consider tom's theme to be how to address the reality stated by
